Wir wurden sehr herzlich empfangen. Später machte Ann mit uns eine Führung auf ihrer Farm, wo sie uns mit ihren vielen Tieren wie Strausse, Emus, Alpacas, Esel, Ponys und Ziegen vertraut machte. Das Frühstück in ihrem Haus war überaus reichhaltig.

We stayed at Ann's place only for one night. The chalet is really nice and well located near the waitomo caves. The breakfast was really great and in the morning Ann also took some time to let us meet all her incredible animals. Surely a place to recommend!

Ann was warm and welcoming and we really enjoyed meeting the many animals, including the pettable ostrich. Breakfast was good in the morning too - was a special treat getting to try the ostrich omelette. The chalet itself was rustic. Overall a nice stay.

Thank you for your feedback. There must have been a window left open and moths fly in to the light. All linen in living room washed and refreshed. Thank you for choosing Big Bird. Ann & Rosa

My wife and I stayed here while visiting the Waitomo glowworm caves. The location itself is great, as it’s just down the road from the caves. Upon arrival we were a little turned off, when we arrived into the Chalet we clearly saw a huge number of bugs (flys & moths). The sliding door and windows were open before we arrived which is likely why the bugs were there (also 3 cans of bug spray in plain view in the kitchen). We realize this B&B is on a working farm but we did not expect to be sleeping with bugs overhead. Also, there is a cat on property that was sleeping in the main bedroom of the chalet, and unfortunately I am allergic to cats and this was not ideal. The cat was also waiting in the morning right outside the chalet door. As soon as we opened the door to leave, the cat ran right into the bedroom. Due to time constraints we were not able to do the animal tour or have breakfast (although an ostrich did nip at my elbow while chatting with Ann during check-in, so watch out for that). Also, if you’re not a fan of birds this place probably isn’t for you, there’s quite a few large ostrichs on the property that are very close to the chalet door. This place definitely has a rustic feel, and if that’s what you’re going for, then you’ll probably like I️t. This place worked just fine as a place to sleep for a night while passing through Waitomo.

Antwort von Waitomo Big Bird B&B & Petting Far:
Sorry that you were uncomfortable with the cat and the birds. For most people, this is the very reason they come to enjoy this place. Most memorable are the friendly animals and the farm ambience. A quick spray deals with any little farm flies. Shame you didn't have the opportunity to enthuse about all the good points you would have discovered. Wishing you a happy future ..

What an amazing experience at Waitomo Big Bird! The location is extremely central and so unique. We arrived a bit late, but were still treated with amazing hospitality. My partner is very fond of animals and even though we were late we were given food to feed the ostrich and donkey, given a cat and her kitten to play with, and taken on a small tour of the other animals early in the morning prior to our departure. Breakfast was delicious (home made and complimentary) and the apartment was exactly as advertised. Overall, we had an amazing stay and would absolutely recommend Waitomo Big Bird to anyone traveling in Waitomo. We will definitely be back!
